OUR STORY

About Us

At the heart and soul of East London since 1895, West Ham United is a dynamic, fan-focused football club constantly moving forward but always inspired by our past.

 

Our home at the London Stadium has a capacity of 60,000, making it one of the biggest club stadia in the country. However, our tickets are the lowest priced for London-based clubs in the Premier League, echoing our objective to create Affordable Family Football for our supporters. With David Moyes in charge, the side secured Europa League qualification in 2020/21 after finishing 6th in the league.

 

In 2018, our women's team gained professional status for the very first time, jumping two divisions and competed in the Women's Super League (WSL), the premier division of women's football in England. After finishing a respectable seventh, the team enjoyed particular success in the FA Cup reaching the final of the competition, eventually being beaten by Manchester City. Under new leadership with Olli Harder, the team have secured Barclays WSL status for another year and will look to make further progress in the 2021/22 season.

 

More recently, in April 2019, we opened our brand new Academy facility at Chadwell Heath, which will help to bring through some of the very best talent in the local area and beyond. The recent emergence of first team players Declan Rice and Ben Johnson are a testament to the work already being done at the Academy.

 

On the business side, we are continuing to enhance a stadium our supporters can call home, with the renaming of the Billy Bonds Stand and Claret and Blue pitch surrounding among the latest developments. A founding member of the FA’s Football Leadership Diversity Code, the Club ensures EDI is at the forefront of all of our activities, policies, and processes and has achieved the Advanced Level of the Premier League’s Equality Standard, whilst also achieving the Disability Confident Leader status. In the 2020/21 season, the Club founded its first ever equality staff forum to listen to our staff and achieve our desire to become an equity leader.

 

The Club employs a constantly growing workforce of approximately 300 core staff and 500 Foundation and events staff and is a truly unique place to work. We are always looking for talented individuals who will thrive in our ambitious organisation. We offer a range of exciting career opportunities across a number of departments.
